The first St George's Day Service at the Garrison Church was held on Sunday 23rd April 2017. There was a large contingent of Scouts present together with their leaders and a good sized group from the Royal Air Force Cadets. A group of Soldiers from the Royal Anglicans, stationed at the Barracks, made up the uniformed congregation.

Also in attendance was the Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich Council and her husband and Pieter van der Merwe (Deputy Lieutenant). The Service was conducted by Chris Moody (Vicar of St Alfege) and the address given by the new Bishop of Woolwich who informed and enthused the young people in equal measure. Tea and refreshments were served and the sun shone brightly. All present were in agreement that the Service should become an annual event, held on the Sunday closest to St George's Day.
